Reaper Bones Giant.

  • Fencing. Several of my units will consist of the vertically challenged/ diminutively proportioned and so fencing may actually inhibit the armies ability to vanquish their foes.

    (I nearly put a few words like synergy into this paragraph; but I didn't want to trigger Ste' s stress monkey as he has enough of that to deal with at work).

    I may well make a few sections of Gulyay Gorod to count as pavise just to try them put. In the meantime we have a unit of swordsmen in team colours and a member of the latest unit to join up. It's pronounced Gehnomi BTW.


  • Ogres. Can't have too many. More Guard and a unit off handgunners.

    PS Can anyone identify the plastic shield. It turned up in my bits box during a damn good sort and I realised that my life will not be complete until I get another one.

  • Very good of you Bryan. I'd be happy with the shields; but there're bow arms and quiver on the sprue by the look of it and I have a hungry bits box.

    I can now order another Reaper Ogre and commence my cunning scheme aimed at bringing diversity to my Empire force.

    Two of those shields and a plastic horse tail will be all I need.

    Will you be able to de-sprue and post?

  • Ah ha! Another Reaper Bones Ogre joins the merry band. The heads are a little Meh! and so I've replaced them with GW Ogre heads, courtesy of Texas Jim, who I trust is somewhere safe and secure in the present kerfuffle. Better stop there!

    The old Reaper head's attached to his belt as a trophy.

    And another Leadbelcher's added to the Roster. Complete with Knoblar Igniter Rick Monson!

    And Bruno the Small Dog says Hi!

  • Another Ogre. In fact it's the last of the 3 Reaper Bones Ogres I had on my desk.

    I've changed the head again as I don't care for the Reaper originals and they fit in with the GW figures.

    And a unit of Whifflers. Still seen on occasion escorting Mayoral processions in England's green and pleasant land; it's a far cry from their role of keeping the troops in order and guarding the banners.

    All carry the Slaughter-swords that marked them out. And no guy that presents Forged in Fire; it's a corruption of the German Sclachtschwerter or battle-sword.

  • Ogres! Never one around when you need one and then three or four of them turn up all at once.

    This fellow was previously in the ranks of my ill-fated Khornate Chaos Renegades force.

    You know, the army that kills half of it's own shooting units in the first turn due to their weapon having it's very own gets hot rule.

    He's not so worried now as his close-range shooting will probably be factored into his melee factors. Oh, and another swordsman.
